Peeked in on my lunch break, and was amazed at the beautiful, clever decorations at tea table, croquet, and downstairs level (the door awning, mushrooms, etc.), the costumed staff (amazing costumes), and all the fun (Walrus and MadHatter were so funny, the late Rabbit, too), and really clever activities! Hope you took lots of photos because it was really an amazing event (used 3 'amaze' words' -- it really was!). Thank you to AADL hard-working staff.
